I would recommend the HPI Savage 5.9 because the top speed is 50 MPH and the 4.6 is only 45 MPH.

I already own the savage flux and i'm looking for a nitro savage, and i'm trying to find the best one. Is it the 25, 4.6 or the 5.9?

Oh, my bad, go with the 5.9. Don't know if it will have the biggest top end, but it'll have a ton of torque for sure.

the 5.9 is really overpriced, and not as reliable as the 4.6. Hpi only makes a kit version of the savage 5.9, which is really a pain to deal with. Dont get the xl either. Its crap. Go with the savage x 4.6. Only $385 at canyon hobbies.
